    We have a Bo(19-20wks) that has some white feathers(not a lot) mixed in with the buff ones on her back and saddle. is this normal for a BO or is there something in her kalvin clines that is not Buff?

    It's probably just new feathers. All mine have had or have that, little white feathers at the base of the tail, despite what color the bird is.

    We appreciate the response Angie ! Thanks, it probably is but it was the only BO that we've seen that on so we didn't know.
